EMPTYING THE DIRT RECEPTACLE
Most models feature dirt receptacles with windows to tell at a glance
when the dirt receptacle should be emptied. In most cases, the dirt
receptacle only needs to be emptied two to three (2-3) times a year.
To remove the dirt receptacle, press the buttons on the receptacle
handles. Remove and empty the contents. Return the receptacle by
attaching the bucket to the power unit. To avoid suction loss make
sure the receptacle is securely attached.

CLEAR BLOCKAGE IN PIPES
Blockage in the hose
Plug hose into any inlet valve. If there is no suction through the hose
after connecting at a couple of inlets, the blockage is in the hose.
To clear the hose obstruction, insert a blunt instrument into the hose
(garden hose, wood dowel). You can also attempt to reverse the
suction through the hose to dislodge the blockage.
Refer to page 7 - Image 12 and 13
If there is one inlet valve without normal suction and you have
checked for hose blockage, then the blockage is in the pipe
system between the blocked inlet valve and the power unit
(see instructions below).
Insert the hose into the inlet valve where there is no suction; hold
your hand over the hose end. Release hand quickly. Repeat several
times. If blockage does not clear, contact your nearest Electrolux
